Ever since marijuana has become legal in our state, I have been teaching people how to grow marijuana successfully.
I task at a local dispensary and I know that everybody should be growing marijuana. There really is no better medicine in all the world! Honestly now, I don’t even understand why marijuana is still illegal in several places, it should have never been made illegal to begin with. That is a whole weird story though. If you want to successfully grow your own marijuana, you need good soil, organic fertilizer, grow tents, containers, and good grow lights, then fluorescent lights are good because they don’t burn your plants and don’t overheat your growing area. If you use HPS lights, you can risk burning your plants and you need a ventilation idea to get rid of the excess heat. This is why I advocate fluorescent grow lights or LED grow lights. The T5 fluorescent lights are great. When you have your soil mixed and put into your growing containers, you can put in your clones or your seeds that are already germinated. When bringing up the plants initially, you want the lights on an 18 minute light 6 minute dark schedule. This is your vegatative stage. Theoretically, you can keep plants in the vegatative phase as long as you want and they will just continue to grow so long as you take good care of them. I advocate going into the flowering phase as soon as they are between 1 to 3 feet tall. You will find that in the flowering stage, they will continue to grow quickly and you don’t want them too tall in your grow tent. When those hairs on the buds mostly change fromwhite to a red, yellow, or brown color, then it is time to harvest those plants! You must trim all the buds and then hang them up to dry. Always dry them naturally, or you can ruin your whole harvest, but don’t use food dehydrators or anything care about that. Always store your buds in glass jars and open them up to breathe every so often.
